A class at my local shop got me moving again.... I work there so sometimes I don't exactly take the class but I try to make the same quilt on my own.
And this was an example. I loved the pattern... in Eleanor Burns Through the Seasons
Anyway - summer porch.... in a class, of course, you purchase all your fabric.. and I just couldn't wrap my head around what I wanted... so I started rummaging through my stash... And I found it!
Two bird prints I had picked up as partial yard remnants years before.... My shop had two prints that sort of matched them.... and my concept was born.
No way did I have enough of either for a quilt - and they really didn't go together. One was summer and one was winter.... But I cut my strips and made the squares. My plan was to make as many squares as I could and see what I could make.
Also managed a couple of smaller single block hangings (about 22-inches finished)
.. and have a couple of double block hangings still in the work basket... More than I can use.... I am thinking that in 2016 I will start having more finished than I can use or give away and might have to start selling them!
